The Star Wars Chess Set. £29.95 ($52.41). Beam me up and make it so. Is that right? Doesn’t sound right. Anyone know what trendy, slightly cynical soundbite goes with this product? Anyone?
Each hand-sculpted and finished chess piece in this set represents a character from the legendary Star Wars saga, and as befits, the black pieces are all characters from the dark side and vice versa. Yoda and the Emperor battle it out as the rival Kings, while Han Solo is the ideal choice for the white Knight. (Actually in this case the white pieces are a far cooler silver.) Surprisingly, neither old Chelsea bun bonce herself, Princess Leia, or Padme get to be Queens – that honour falls to Obi-Wan and Darth Vader.
